Omega Continues to Speed After 60 Years

The first watch to go to the moon

2003

The famed Snoopy model was made to commemorate the “Silver Snoopy Award” presented by NASA to Omega for the latter’s assistance in getting the crew of the doomed Apollo 13 mission safely back to Earth.

2013

The new generation of the Moonwatch, the so-called Dark Side of the Moon was crafted from a single block of ceramic, and marked yet another major technical milestone for Omega.

2015

One of the most sought-after Speedmaster models, this tribute to the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 13 mission is easily recognized from the distinctive Snoopy illustration on the sub-dial at 9 o’clock. Today, the brand still receives a constant stream of requests for this model.

2017

In 2012, the #SpeedyTuesday phenomenon revealed the immense fandom behind the Speedmaster line. To commemorate the online community’s fifth anniversary, Omega produced a limited edition model sold exclusively online. It sold out in no time—to no one’s surprise.

2017

The year 2017 also saw a redesign that brought the Speedmaster back to its racing roots. The new Speedmaster Automatic featured a matt-black dial, orange markings and beveled 18K white gold arrowhead indexes.

The selections above only represent a small selection of the Speedmaster line, but perhaps it can show us a brief glimpse at the memories, achievements and dreams that a single watch collection can contain as it speeds through the history of mankind.
